Nasir al-Mulk, The “Pink Mosque” of Iran

Info 1
The Nasir al-Mulk Mosque in Shiraz, Iran, seems like a fairly traditional house of worship. Actually, it’s hiding a gorgeously colorful secret. It features a rather uncommon element for a mosque: stained glass. If you catch the early morning light, you’ll witness a gorgeous play of light on the floor and on the walls, a falling of multiple rainbows on the Persion carpets. It was built to catch the morning sun, so if you plan on visiting it at noon it will be too late to catch the daily surreal episode.
Besides the richly colored stained-glasses, you’ll find in there gorgeously painted, intricate arches, niches and painted geometrical tiles. In fact, because of the those rose-colored tiles, the mosque is also known as the “Pink Mosque”.
